This shawl is inspired by the sparkling waters of a waterfall. The meandering lace includes a narrow stockinette sections at the top of the pattern, which expand with each twist toward the bottom of the shawl. It is easy enough even for the beginner lace knitter because the pattern is formed with basic decreases paired with simple yarn overs while the reverse rows are all purled. This project is knitted in one piece starting with the bottom edge followed by easy short rows (no wraps) that give the shawl its unique crescent form. Waterfall is a perfect showcase for a hand-dyed yarn because the tendency of these yarns to pool unpredictably will actually enhance the overall watery effect.
The original shawl was knitted with 680 yards of the stunning MacKintosh Yarns Rhiannon Silk Lace yarn.
There is a small mistake in the chart row numbers. Rows 61 & 63 are listed as 71 & 73.
